VOLVISTEER CANDIDATES.—As there are several
volunteer candidates before the people, who are soli
citing in genet al terms, through the newspapers and in
handbills, the 'support of democratic partizans, and
ere doubtless constantly making personal appeals for
democratic votes, we deem it our duty to notice them
all inn brief way, and inquire how far any democrat
- would be justifiable in abandoning the regularly nomi
nated ticket of his party to vote for any of them.
There are three volunteers for the Sberiffalty:
R. Lecky, Esq., for many years clerk in the Sheriff's
office—Mr. Jos. W. Decker, well known as a collect
ing constable for Lawrenceville, we believe—and Mr.
David Wilkins, who has been for several years past
engaged in trade and the transportation business.
Bile,Lceky is the youngest MITI of the three, but
sanchilie most competent of them—he has, however,
no ihadow of a claim, that we are aware of, upon the
support of democrats--for we have always understood
„Fr. L. to be a decided and strenuous wltig, and (we
believe) a supporter of Clay.
Messrs. Decker and Wilkins are also understood to
be of the federal school of politics—whether they have
hitherto acted with the antimasons or with the whip,
we do not know certainly; hot we believe that Mr.
Wilkins is a Whig.
The only volunteer candidate for the Prothonotary
ship is Ale.r'r Millar, Esq. Mr. M. is no doubt corn-
patent enough, and is a very descrying citizen, but in '
neither of these respects is he preferable to his demo
cratic competitor. He is what may be s tyled neutral
in politics. Every democrat knows how prone these
neutrals are to give their support to Whigs, especially
in exciting contests. We are not intimately acquaint
ed with Mr. Millar's political course, but we have al
ways made it a rule to concede every doubtful or care
less voter to the Whigs. No man who is thoroughly
convinced of the truth and soupiness of democratic
principled and measures will hesitate to avow his opi
nions. And the democratic party cannot depend up
on any man who does not fearlessly and constantly
profess devotion to their leading principles.
Mr. Samuel Hubley is a volunteer candidate for'
Commissioner. He is too well known among his
fellow-citizens to requite an extensive notice. We
believe he has put his sable cockade away for
the present, but he is a devoted whig, and friend of
Mr. Clay.
This, we believe, completes the lot of volunteer
candidates. It will be seen that if democrats sup- I
port any of them, they will surely be giving their suf
frages to political.oppoaents, or to those who they
cannot depend on as friends—and that they will thus
aid indirectly the regularly nominated candidates of
the opposing parties.
It may happen. however, that some members of the
democratic party would, on account of their private
relations with some of these volunteers, feel bound to
give them their support. To such we would say,
Consider whether your vote can be of any assistance
tro the friend you wish to serve. All who will look
calmly over the field of contest will see that no
ore of the volunteers has the remotest chance of
success. It is impossible to change the habit the peo
ple have of voting far the tickets formed by the va
riobs parties. The contest is between the candidates
of the Conventions, and let no man be persuaded that
any of the volunteers can come within even a respecta
ble distance of the Convention competitors. Such be
ing the case,every democrat who votes for one of them,
from whatever motive, will undoubtedly throw away
his vote, and, without serving his friend, may defeat
his party. No true democrat, who looks rightly at
this matter, will, we are convinced, support a volun
teer candidate, while there is the slightest danger of
such an unpleasant political result, without the possi
bility of accomplishing any personal good to his friend
or himself.
MAINE ELEcrton.—The Portland Argus of Monday
gives returns of votes for Governor from 315 towns,

An extract from the office of the "Star otk Florida,"
published at Tallahassee on the ]6th mist., brings ac
counts of a nniA destructive storm, eccompauied by
loss of life and property, which occurred there and in
the vicinity, on the 13th inst. At Tallahassee the dam
age was set very great, though several houses were
prostrated and chimnies of others blown down. The
roads in every direction were blocked up by falling
trees. The town of Port Leon, 13 literally in ruins,
The tide made a breach over the town ton feet deep;
every warehouse in the place, with one exception was

in a like condition. St. Marks suffered to a like ex
tent. At Port La®, one negro only was drowned,
but at the Light House fourteen lives were lost, viz:
Capt. M. C. Bobertson, his wife and children, and
a child of Dr. Tradewell's, Mt.. Joseph Wood, a por
trait painter front Tallahassee, a child of R. V. Buffins,
and five negroes.
The Star adds: "In 'addition to the 'above, we
have learned that the family of Mr. Edward Walker,
living on Shell Point, wife, children and five or six
negroes, all perished. Mr. Walker birusiqf escaped
by climbing to the branches of a tree, till the water
subsided. It is also stated that there are several tub
er persons living on this point, and who have notbeen
heard from, and of whose safety great doubts ore en
tertained. There are also sevoral families from this
county, in summer quarters on James Island, on whose
account much anxiety is felt. Indeed such was the
violence of the winds and the height to which the tide
rose, that oar imagination can scarcely fix limits to
its ravages. Cedar Keys, Apalachicola, St. Joseph,
can scarcely have escaped without much damage."
telligencor gives a reminder that the great Peyton stake
is to be run for over the Nashville course, early in Oc
tober. It is exciting unusual interest among the gen
tlemen of the turf. It will be the lsrgest purse ever
contended for in this country or in Europe. Thirty
horses have been entered, untried nags of four years
old, and among them the produce of Priam, Eclipse,
Black Maria, Leviathan, Plenipotentiary, Lufborough,
and other celebrated racers. The entry is five thou
sand dollars, with a thousand dollars forfeit,and, coon
, ling largely upon withdrawals, the winning colt will
take a purse of eighty thousand dollars. An unusual
ly large number of gentlemen from the Southern and
Western States, it is expected, will be present—all
more or less interested in the trial of speed of the dif
ferent stock of their several States.

MR. MA.CREADY. — The reception of this gentleman
at the Park Theatre, on Monday evening, (says the
Sun,) was most cordial and enthusiastic, and certainly
every thing himself or the most ardent adinirers of the
Drama could d: sire. The Theatre was quite filled at
an early lour, and if we could judge from the repeated
plaudits of the audience, their expectations of his fame
were fully realized. Mr. Ryder, the gentleman who

in every respect well desorviug of a liberal support
from our play goers. No member of the company pos
sesses more ability than Mrs. H CASTINGS; and all
who have visited the Theatre will agree with us that
none have exerted themselves more industriously or
successfully to please the audience. She deserves, as
we hope she will receive, a full House. The bill of the
evening will be found in our advertising columns.

the Secretary of the Treasury has matured his plans
for a Government circulating medium, and that fifty

are ready to be issued. They will be filled to one uni

they will be made payable to the bearer, in specie, on

issued. The law governing them does not permit a

This gentleman is at present pursuing a very strange,
course. Ile is, to use the old saying, endeavoring to
"carry water on bmit shoulders," hoping thereby to
smuggle himself into the Senate. Knowing that the
whir, that is the Oa% whigs, would not touch him ,
with a ten foot pole if they knew his opinions on the
the questions that are agitated at the present time, he
stands mute, and is determined, as far as we can hear,
to impose himself upon them by remaining silent. But
we doubt very much whether it can be done, and wheth
er the whigs will not yet before the election stir him
up upon some questions.
They must know, at least a majority of them, that
he is a violent anti-Clay man, an anti-mason and polit.
ical abolitionist of the very worst kind, and in fact op
posed to every measure that they advocate. Having
entirely lost the confidence of his own party in Butler.
he is going around with the Democratic candidate
for Assembly, preaching on the reform acts passed by
the Legislature last winter, and the merits of his
own services. He takes this course with the hope of
getting some Democratic votes. conscious of thr fact
that his own party will not support him. A man that
pursues such a course for the . sxke of office may suc
ceed once, and but once only He will soon come to
be distrusted and despised by all men and all parties.
One that would sell his soul for a mess of pottage, and
one that no party would place any confidence in.
Our friends in Butler expect to give our candidate,
Mr NEOGEY, a majority of at least two hundred, and
it may possibly reach four hundred, owing to the great
dissatisfaction among the whigs towards their candi
date. P.
